Pickin’ A Chicken
Recorded by Jim Reeves
Written by Derek Bernfield, John Roberts, Trevor Boswell
C 
Come to the barbeque and  
G7 
sit by my side
 
We couldn’t chose a better  
C 
night if we tried
 
Can’t you imagine what a  
G7 
thrill it will be
 
Pickin’ a chicken with  
C 
me
 
It’s so romantic the  
F 
moon up above
 
Is such a  
G7 
fright on a night such as  
C 
this
 
Pullin’ a wish bone with  
F 
someone you love
 
Is almost  
G7 
certain to end with a  
C 
kiss
 
So come to the barbeque my  
G7 
darlin’ my dear
 
I’m so in love with you and  
C 
when you are near
 
I get a feelin’ that  
G7 
forever you’ll be
 
Pickin’ a chicken with  
C 
me
Repeat #2,3
G7 
Pickin’ a chicken with  
C 
me
G7 
Pickin’ a chicken with  
C 
me
